The end of a great series
4 April 2016 | by MissClassicTVSee all my reviews

A great series comes to an end with an uneven episode.

Harry is hired to investigate the doctor of a recently deceased old man. His widow has sued the doctor for malpractice. David Janssen continues to be eminently watchable. And Ruth Roman, who plays the mother-in-law of the deceased, is actually pretty good. She's funny. However, Denise Galik, the young widow, is like a block of wood. And the case is solved after an extended car and foot chase. It's too bad. A car chase shouldn't be the lasting image of Harry O. Harry's defining qualities are his intelligence and introspection. The very last scene that wraps up the series, though, is a good one. It's a show of Harry's sentimentality, which is fitting.

Harry O was a unique character and David Janssen played him perfectly. He had a great costar in Anthony Zerbe. And Farrah Fawcett was sweet as Sue. The clothes and the plots may be dated, but the character and ultimately the show have stood the test of time.
